Here’s the only unfortunate part of NaNoWriMo. For the month of November I’ll be focused in adding 1700 words to Project Amulet on a daily basis. That doesn’t leave me a lot of time to figure out what to say about my socks. Today I wore Punisher socks. See, coz I’m gonna punish* anyone who … Continue reading Punishing for NaNoWriMo
Remember back in the “Good Ol’ Days”, the halcyon, glory-tinged days of yestermonth, when I actually managed to post more than just a short poem and a dredging up of old short fiction? Like, when I wrote posts about topics. Yeah, last month truly was the Golden Age for blogging. Take comfort, though! Thing are … Continue reading A sad and yet happy farewell to NaNoWriMo 2013.

On October 1st, not only did certain members of the US House of Representatives decide to take their football and go home (thus ruining the whole Federal Government game for all of us), the website for National Novel Writing Month 2013 went live. How are these things related? They’re really not. They’re wholly independent. But! … Continue reading Thoughts in advance of NaNoWriMo 2013

*tap* *tap* Is this thing on? Check. Check 1. Check 1-2. Chuck. Chuck Toast. So, um, hello! In case you don’t seem to know me, or in the more likely case just can’t remember me, I’m Puddin. I mostly do all the nonsense rambling around here. Well, at least I used to. I’m sure you … Continue reading A Triumphant Return to Blogging (or…blinking in the sunlight after a month of NaNoWriMo)
There once was on a NaNo-ing word-monkey whose Thanksgiving was clearly quite lovely. But when they’d devoured all the bird, t’was time to write catch-up words, or his novel’d be cooked like his turkey!
[Not sure what I’m talking about with this whole NaNoWriMo thing?

You can get more information here, and hey, why not check out my first post on the subject?] Dear Your Name Goes Here, By the … Continue reading An open letter to friends, family, and loved ones at the start of NaNoWriMo
No, you don’t have to say Gesundheit. NaNoWriMo (typically pronounced “nan-o-ri-mo”, or by occasionally “nan-o-ree-mo”) is kind of an abbreviation for National Novel Writing Month. Although, really, I though abbreviations are supposed to be, you know, short. But whatever, I’m not going to nit pick. So, what is this National Novel Writing Month thing?
